Given the current charged social atmosphere, you might not plan on going out much until things settle down. If you planned on getting a COVID-19 test today, you've got one less reason to head out.

That's because today, Monday, June 1st, all community-based COVID-19 testing centers will be closed. And by all, we mean these:

  • Harwood Heights
  • South Holland
  • Auburn/Gresham/Chatham
  • Rolling Meadows
  • East St. Louis
  • Waukegan
  • Champaign
  • Peoria
  • Aurora
  • Rockford

As to why the testing sites are closed, no explanation has been offered, but the tweet from the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) did draw a few questions and comments.
